Natural Immunity Boosters for Autumn

The temperature change in autumn means our immune systems are more likely to take a beating. Lower temperatures lead to more viruses lingering in the air, and allergies can irritate your lungs and nasal passages; leaving you more susceptible to cold and flus. It’s no wonder you hear more coughing and sneezing in cold weather.

Our immune system can do a great job of defending us against disease-causing microorganisms, but in autumn it can do with a boost of emu oil. Here’s why…

How does emu oil works to boost your immunity naturally?

Emu oil is a natural source of Omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 and is rich in Vitamins A, D, E, F & K2.

Research shows that the structure of emu oil can improve immune system functions. Furthermore, Vitamin A helps fight common conditions such as colds, cough and flu, and may alleviate allergy flare ups. The bacteriostatic composition of emu oil allows it to help fight off infection and stop the reproduction of bacteria, as well as treat antibiotic-resistant infections.

Taking emu oil daily can assist in the maintenance of general health and wellbeing, strengthening your immune system every day over time.

However, the quality of the emu oil plays a huge part in its effectiveness.
This is why you should only choose TGA-listed emu oil products…

What is a TGA listed product?

TGA stands for the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia. This means products with a TGA listing have been assessed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration under the Australian Department of Health for their quality and safety.

They can only be manufactured in a TGA licensed site to control the quality and safety of the final product. TGA requires emu oil companies to conduct a thorough analysis of every batch of emu oil it produces, to ensure consistent quality and bioavailability of Omega 3, 6 & 9, and Vitamins A, D, E & K.

Emu Spirit’s therapeutic range is listed on the ARTG (Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods), and we display an ‘AUST L’ number on our label as proof of listing. We are proud to be the world’s first fully Australian-made company to have our emu oil listed on the ARTG.

How to use Emu Oil for Babies

Being new parents is a daunting yet exciting experience. There are so many things you need to take care of post-baby; from food, clothing, sleep schedules, diaper changes and everything in between. Add one more thing to the ever-growing list: your newborn’s skin.

Babies and infants have delicate, thin skin. Many external factors can irritate their skin, such as harsh climate, foods new to the digestive system, and allergies leading to rash and eczema.

Common skin conditioners for newborns include:
– Eczema
– Seborrheic Dermatitis
– Chicken Pox
– Roseola
– Dermatitis
– Psoriasis
– Rashes
– Cradle Cap

Treatments include topical antiseptic, oral antibiotics and oral antihistamines, but we believe it is so important to use gentle, effective, 100% natural skincare products for your newborn.

If you’re looking for a natural remedy for baby’s skin, emu oil can be a great baby safe option. It is antibacterial, with calming properties which can effectively relieve skin rash symptoms such as itchiness, redness and pain. Its restorative properties means it may eventually reduce inflammation and help regenerate skin tissues. The best thing is, unlike traditional medication, emu oil is hypoallergenic and has no proven side effects.

Another common baby skin condition is diaper dermatitis, or more commonly referred to as ‘diaper rash / nappy rash’.

Usually caused by wet nappies, diarrhea, new foods and antibiotics; diaper rash is a skin disturbance that can spread rashes to other body parts and develop a fever.

If you’re looking for a natural treatment for nappy rash, consider applying pure emu oil on the affected areas of the skin. Emu oil is commonly used as a skincare product to protect and moisturise baby’s delicate skin, and the natural properties found in high quality emu oil has been found to reduce inflammation, restore skin tissue and provide relief from itching and pain. Finally – baby (and you!) can have a good night’s sleep.

Remember, if your baby developed a rash for the first time, or just started taking a new medication, always consult your physician first.

Bonus Tip #1 – Use Emu Oil in the Bath

Cool baths with oatmeal can help to stop itchy skin. But, did you know you can also add a few drops of Emu Spirit 100% Pure Oil of Emu in a warm bath to aid the treatment of baby’s irritated skin? The naturally soothing properties of emu oil leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. You can even apply emu oil after the bath, directly on the affected areas of the skin for extra protection and healing.

Bonus Tip #2 – Use Emu Oil for Stretch Marks!

Did you know emu oil may effectively reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and other skin damages post-birth? This is because emu oil penetrates the epidermis and the dermis, allowing its natural healing properties to repair the skin and connective tissues.

Emu oil can be used post-pregnancy, and can also be used to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.

Simple apply Emu Spirit 100% Pure Oil of Emu on affected skin and gently massage until absorbed. Repeat this routine 3-5 times a day.
